    Why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can't remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? These and other questions have stumped both sexes throughout the ages. Now, pioneering neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine, M.D., brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think and what they value.

    Michael Dillman says: "Great material :^D -- Agonizing orator >:^("
    "Sad when it ended."

    Its hard enough to live a secular life in a religious world. And bringing up children without religious influence can be even more daunting. Despite the difficulties, a large and growing number of parents are choosing to raise their kids without religion.In Parenting Beyond Belief, Dale McGowan celebrates the freedom that comes with raising kids without formal indoctrination and advises parents on the most effective way to raise freethinking children.

  • Plastic: A Toxic Love Story

    Plastic built the modern world. Where would we be without bike helmets, baggies, toothbrushes, and pacemakers? But a century into our love affair with plastic, we're starting to realize it's not such a healthy relationship. Plastics draw dwindling fossil fuels, leach harmful chemicals, litter landscapes, and destroy marine life. As journalist Susan Freinkel points out in this engaging and eye-opening book, we're nearing a crisis point.

    Danya says: "Immensely entertaining and informative"
    "great book about plastics!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Only certain friends that would be concerned with plastic in their life.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The medical aspect of plasic.
    And the plastic bag.
    The book is great at explaining why plastic came about and how each item the writter hones in on made way for more and more plasic to invade our lives with out us barely noticeing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, the chapter about the chair was a little over the top boring. But I appreciate how thourgh she was from the begining of the chair to how we came to a plasic chair. Almost as if you need to master the concept of the chair before understanding the simplicity of a chair being one (plastic) piece.
